voted yes while eric cantor and kevin mccarthy voted no. if he decides to run for president in 2016, he might be going up against rubio or rand paul, they both voted no. ryan would be only one of the three that voted yes. the plan means the bush tax cuts will continue for those making under $400,000 a year and couples making less than $450,000 a year. the tax rates will go back up for those making more. the automatic spending cuts that were set to kick in today are delayed for two months. the deal with extend unemployment insurance for some two million people for a year. the estate tax goes back up to 40%. also tax credits will continue for child care, tuition and research and development. on the flip side, the payroll tax rate will go back up to more than 6%. next up, congress and the administration have to figure out what to do about the spending cuts that are going to go into effect in two months if we don't do something and also, there is the issue of raising the debt ceiling. we're back with more show and
republicans include some very powerful figures. eric cantor, kevin mccarthy, second and third highest ranking republicans in the house among them. a new congress is sworn in tomorrow, so boehner facing a crucial vote. will there be a revolt against him or despite some very public failures and the fact he wasn't even at the center of this whole debt deal itself, will he just sail into the speakership any way? this is a pretty, you know, amazing story. there's been a real repudiation, but how is this vote going to go is this. >> people may not realize that the speaker of the house is elected by the entire house, not just his or her party, so there will be a vote on the house floor tomorrow and what is going to be really fascinating to watch, erin, is how the vote goes because the difference between republicans an democrats, if you do the math, if all democrats voted against him, all any opponent would need to do is get 17 republicans to vote against him and what then happens is he doesn't get the majority and they take another vote and if he doesn't get the majority, they take another vote. it
bit. eric cantor is the majority leader in the house. he is a very senior republican politician. he is a driving force in the party and he sticks with speaker of the house john boehner. he said i do not support it. that is different from john boehner, who think would rather get this bill done and move on to the next battle. the republicans feel more confident about the battle over raising the debt ceiling of the united states. an image of would leave you with is that although there is a split between these very senior republican politicians in house, they did go into their latest meeting about two hours ago absolutely side by side. the congressman here i was talking to said it was an optical display of unity. the iranian prime minister has offered to release more than 700 female prisoners. the rallies are accusing his government of unfair treatment. >> hundreds of thousands of people in sunni provinces have been protesting for almost two weeks. they said the government discriminates against them. now the prime minister is threatening to end the demonstrations by force. >> i want eve
had from both the speaker and the majority leader eric cantor are iron clad. i think we're going to proceed. and i think that this recognizes the heartache and misery that both of our states, the region have suffered as a -- it has been as the governor emphasized, governor christie and in his press conference within the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. i think it is about time congress responded. i'm pleased that the speaker and the majority leader have listened to our pleas. >> why not have voted on the senate bill and have it all done today? >> that was our hope, but, you know, it will happen. that's the bottom line. and it will happen at the amount that we think is required to meet the legitimate needs of the people of new jersey, new york and points north. >> we asked congressman king, the speaker tell you the reason why he abruptly yanked this from the calendar? >> as peter probably said, he alluded to the fact that there was so much going on, but did not give a specific reason. you might want to ask him that. for us, it is about getting critical aid to people who
into session sunday evening. house majority leader eric cantor is telling his members to be prepared to work through january 2nd. both sides are still far apart on taxes and spending cuts. harry reid says prospect deals by monday are unlikely. minority leader mitch mcconnell says there's still time for an agreement. >> republicans aren't likely to sign a blank check just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. >> now, a new reuters poll shows americans blame republicans more than democrats or president obama for the fiscal crisis. and when asked who they held more response, 27% said the gop, 6% pointed to the dems and 30% said all of the above. for more on this, we're joined by christian schultz from barronberg bank. welcome. so we're going over the fiscal cliff. >> well, the consumer confidenc already be over the cliff in terms of confidence already. that might already be the first impact of the crisis of -- not of the crisis, but yes of the fiscal cliff. it seems we have this moment where this animal goes over the cliff, all limbs a
before breaking pieces and catching on fire. gregg: new videotape shoug house majority leader eric cantor arriving at capitol hill. he really didn't say much of anything. he was asked what's going on, is there a deal? he basically said, happy new year, happy new year, happy new year three times. and the senate is not convening until about 11:00 a.m.. it may not be officially reconvening but just meeting. that was the time that harry reid said it would happen. tony sayegh, former press aide to gop vice-presidential nominee jack kemp and national political correspondent for talk radio news service. kirsten powers, columnist for "the daily beast" and fox news contributor. questions ten, you said the president will come out getting most he what he wants. how do you figure that? >> well the main thing that the president wanted and what he really ran on during the entire campaign was raising taxes on people who make over $250,000. it's possible that threshold could move a little bit. the president put about the a week or two ago 400,000 threshold on the table. sew we could see something that go
top lieutenants voted against it, including majority leader eric cantor. some democrats oppose the deal. in the senate, iowa democrat tom harkin was one of eight senators who voted against it. >> i am not saying everything this deal is bad. there are some good parts to this. but i repeat, i am concerned about this constant drift bit by bit, deal by deal toward more deficits, less job creation, more and fairness, less economic justice. a society where the gap goes wider between the few who have much in the many who have too little. so, mr. president, for these reasons, i must in good conscience vote no on this bill. >> despite passage of the deal, many in the u.s. was the tax increase after the expiration of the payroll tax cut enacted in 2011. when we come back from the break, we will be joined by a boston economist juliet schor. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. back in a minute. ♪ [music break] >> "unsatisfied." this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman with nermeen shaikh. our
notice how eric cantor, the house majority leader voted on the fiscal cliff deal last night. he voted against it. some have interpreted that to be premonition, an indication perhaps there will be some sort of a challenge to the speakership of john boehner. however we have heard nobody speak publicly, nobody speak on the record in that regard. keep in mind if his speakership were to be challenged would require a vote not just of the republican conference but the entire house of representatives. jenna: big question whether or not a change in leadership would elicit different results that is conversation yet to be had in the coming weeks. >> so you try. jenna: doug, thank you very much. jon: so the white house and congress knew of the self-imposed deadline for more than 17 months and they still managed to blow past it. finally approving a tax deal last night that doesn't seriously address the spending cuts or the nation's ballooning deficit. so who wins and who loses with this deal? talk about it with jonah gold perg, editor-at-large at "the national review" and a fox news contributor. b
minute. eric cantor did. stan hoyer among others not happy. >> i am deeply disappointed mr. speaker, and the people who have been damaged by hurricane sandy, including governor chris christie and governor cuomo, should be deeply disappointed and yes, angry, that this congress would adjourn without addressing the pain of our fellow citizens. >> bill: it is outrageous -- i have not been there personally but seen so much video of the horrific destruction in parts of new york and new jersey -- >> that is still there, yeah. >> bill: yeah, people still suffering, and the congress just basically saying, we don't care about this. >> yeah, it's just the house, right? because the senate had actually done some stuff, and had planned to come back one more day and deal with what the house passed and in the midst of all of this stuff at the last minute they just pulled it off of the agenda. and it was a bipartisan anger at the house leadership last night when that happened. >> bill: eleanor holmes norton representing the district of columbia will be joining us in studio abou
conference one week ago when the talk was in the air, eric cantor stood by his side, and that was a signal that if anybody is going to challenge him, it might be eric cantor. he will not challenge. he is absolutely on board. host: david lightman, thank you as always for being with us. guest: thank you for having me. host: we will check in with you again and your dog. every friday we look at america by the numbers. today, we want to focus on the issue of hunger in america. "washington journal" continues. negotiations are resuming this afternoon at 3:00 p.m. eastern time. [applause] >> there are cynics said that a party platform is something nobody bothers to read and it does not amount to much. whether it is different this time than it has ever been before, i believe the republican party has a platform that is a banner of bold, unmistakable callers with no faded or pastel shades. >> you see the evolution of ronald reagan. he speaks in his speech about hope, a future without nuclear weapons, but it is more progressive and optimistic in 1976. you can see his anti-communism is evolving. his cu
call. eric cantor ridge just announce the house plans to return on sunday at 6:30 p.m. and will be in session sunday through friday, that is after new year's by my calendar, still awaiting senate action but will be back on sunday, 40 hours that you were talking about. it is time for stocks. we head back to nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange. nicole: the best levels of the last few hours and wonder if people are saying i like it, put me in extra effort. a moment ago, the last half hour we were down 140 points so we are seeing some improvement in the market right now. let's talk about two names on the move, smith and wesson we are talking about, saw them selling off dramatically after the shooting in connecticut. just 3.5%, repurchasing of $15 million in shares. also dominos pizza, a great performer today and stock hitting an all-time high, oppenheimer raising the price to $50 and earnings per share, a vase a domino's pizza looking good, potential bright spot to the year 2013. tracy: coming up talking about the weather, a winter storm wreaking havoc o
to me. and it says, you know, exactly -- >> even though eric cantor was right there probably helping him out? >> but that's the thing is he had eric cantor there, which should have given him the cover. now, you know, at some point john boehner has to make a decision, which is do i let these people dictate what type of legislation we're going to put to this body, or will i get rid of this informal role that anything i let come to a vote has to have the majority of the majority, which means that a majority of republicans have to vote on the bill for it to pass. because that's really the only resolution to this deal is can he -- will he pass a deal that will have a lot of democratic support in the house? >> and is, as i look at next week and the fiscal cliff presumably happening, going over it, john boehner is supposed to be re-elected speaker on next thursday. >> on the 3rd, yeah. >> is that going to change everything and he's going to say, to hell with this right-wing tail wagging my dog, i don't need you guys anymore? >> no, because the house isn't the only theater of this. there's the s
. that was something that was worked up by him and eric cantor and others. so the real test here and i think challenge the president and john boehner sitting down again over the next three or four days. i think we have a few more days. we go over the cliff on the first but the new congress isn't sworn in until january 3rd. if they can work out, maybe just a small deal now. maybe down payments on cuts. maybe it is protecting, certainly protecting tax cuts for the middle class and small businesses and doing, you know, a few things to medicare, and then that gets us into next year where we can do bigger stuff like corporate tax reform and larger reforms to the tax code. jon: amos, what do you think about that proposal? >> that proposal, the whole situation is telling. we didn't have to be here. we all saw this coming for months. we knew it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they hav
boehner voted yes, his number two majority leader eric cantor voted no and there will be another fiscal fight over the next two months, that's when military cuts are due. they kicked them down the road. that battle will now be joined over the next 60 days and we'll see what we get in the end after that. arthel: there is a limit on how many ad advil you can take in one day. bill: then you have to shift to ae alieve. we talked about military cuts and cuts to medicare, none of that was addressed in the drama we just watched unfold, none of it. arthel: no. let's get to this now the medical scare for america's top diplomat, secretary of state hillary clinton remains in a new york hospital where she is being treated with blood thinners for a blood clot lodged between her skull and her brain. molly henneberg live in washington with more. >> reporter: doctors say secretary clinton is making excellent progress, is in good spirits and should make a full recovery. she remains in new york presbyterian hospital as doctors monitor that brain clos. the the blood thinners should resolve it. clinton did
